There are so many  possibilities and this print is not limited to a specific type of artist. I see ceramicists using their fingers to add smears of clay, poets and authors jotting down their written words, make up artists adding colorful pigments with powders and polish, embroidery artists and weavers punching holes for threads and fibers, multimedia artists gluing papers and fabrics to create a collage, dancers using paint on their toes to make their mark, and so much more. The word “artist” belongs to so many of us! If you aren’t sure and would like some suggestions on how you can make this print your own, reply to this email and let me know what your art form is–I would love to brainstorm some things you could try!

I also really like the idea of gifting this to a teen or child in your life–the way they fearlessly create always amazes me and fills me with a special kind of joy and awe! It’s important we help nurture, encourage, and support their creativity.

Lastly, if you want to enter but there’s a voice in your head saying, “I’m scared I’m going to mess up!” or “I’m not there yet/good enough”, I understand (I also got cold feet about messing up right before starting!) but what if there’s no such thing as messing up and what if there’s no “there” to arrive at? What I’ve learned from the artists we’ve seen so far is that what you create now is a way to capture who you are in this moment and every mark you make is exactly where it was meant to be.
